It could be bad rotors, rotors can be rusted on the inside which may be only seen when the inner brake pads are removed. sometimes aftermarket pads can be made of very hard material and they may grind when they make contact with rotors. I would check the condition of the rotors by completely dismantling the rear brake and either re-surface rotors or replace them and put on some oem(dealer pads or a good aftermarket organic pad. Good Luck

2007 ford sport trac new brakes hear a clicking coming from brake caliper when stopping can i just bleed them or is it going bad? disk front and back


If the brakes are making a clicking sound when the brake is applied, that means that something may not have been put back together right. I would definitely yank it back apart and check to make sure that the brake pads fit securely in the brackets with no play at all, too. It's easy to get the wrong pads for a Sport Trac; the parts are completely unique and a lot of parts stores even have incorrect listings for brake and suspension parts for those things. Brake system wear can create a grinding, pulsing, or squealing sound, but shouldn't produce a click. Something isn't right there!

Braking results in grinding sound


I suggest you pull rear drums or have someone qualified look at rear brakes. it could of broke a spring or other brake hardware. I suggest stop driveing the car until you can inspect or have the brakes inspected..

I have replaced the front brakes and right front 98 ford tarus.


typically if you pump the brakes and it gets harder by each pump the master cylinder is good.Check all calipers for leaks,and rubber hoses..still no signs of leaks then open the bleeder screws on both front calipers and let them drip for about 15 minutes,and keeping the resivoir full of fluid..tighten the bleeders and pump them up..hopefully they work and all it was is a little air in them still.
